Peter Gabriel Reveals New Album Details

(Prog) Peter Gabriel has confirmed the tracklist for his album of covers, "And I'll Scratch Yours." It follows 2010′s Scratch My Back, which saw him recording a selection of songs by artists he admires.

He said at the time: "If you're going to reinterpret something, then really do something. Nail your colours to the mast and say, 'This is different, and it isn't everybody's cup of tea.'"

The idea behind And I'll Scratch Yours was to have those musicians return the favour. All but David Bowie, Neil Young, Ray Davies and Radiohead have now done so. "I've sort of given up waiting for the others," Gabriel said in 2011. "I might try to find three or four other people to cover my stuff so I can make an album out of that."

Lou Reed's version of Solsbury Hill is described as a radical reinterpretation, while Brian Eno's take on Mother Of Violence is "frighteningly futuristic," according to Gabriel. More details including the tracklist and guest list.
